Abstract:Giant Grouper (E. lanceolatus) is one of the most desirable marine fish in the world. Its robust nature, tremendous growth rate, superb quality flesh and high value make it ideal for open ocean aquaculture. This species has also been heavily overfished throughout its range. Hatcheries could… more
Abstract:The U.S. Navy has special requirements for recovery, maintenance and repair of seafloor cable systems. The Navy frequently makes repairs to cable systems damaged by seafloor hazards by dragging a grapnel hook near the vicinity of the break. The process of recovering the cable to make the repairs is… more
Abstract:Described herein is a proposal for the design and fabrication of a novel, low-cost, low-profile nanotube antenna that can be conformed to the skin of composite airframe structures and potentially be integrated with nanotube active devices. Carbon nanotubes conformed to composite structures create… more
Abstract:The proposed effort will develop an electro-optical sensor to direct an advanced monopulse electronic attack (EA) technique from an aircraft toward the antenna of a semiactive missile rather than the illuminating radar to increase the effectiveness of the countermeasures. The proposed… more
Abstract:The cross-eye jamming technique based on DRFM can be extended to a dual platform system by using the collaborative network theory. Each airplane is equipped with Oceanit's patented optical sensor, which is capable of measuring the angle between the other airplane and the missile. Therefore, the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We have recently developed a new animal transgenesis method mediated by Tn5 transposase (Suganuma et al. Tn5 Transposase-Mediated Mouse Transgenesis: Biology of Reproduction, published on-line ahead of print August 3, 2
005). This technique was successful in… more
Abstract:Oceanit proposes to develop a reliable, low-cost, easy-to-install, self-monitoring, and self-expanding wireless communication system to enable remote monitoring and tracking of sensors on emergency first responders in hostile environments. The heart of the system will use a Zigbee wireless mesh… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Anthrax Lethal Factor (LF) is a metalloproteinase introduced into the cells of mammalian hosts during infection by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis. LF disrupts intracellular signaling pathways mediated by the MAPKKs, r
esulting in cell toxicity, sepsis,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ebola and Marburg viruses, the only members of the family Filoviridae, cause hemorrhagic fevers which are lethal in up to 90% of human cases. No vaccine or antiviral therapy currently exists to prevent or treat Filoviru
s infection. Due to their exceptional… more
Abstract:Satellites and other spacecraft are a key asset and critical vulnerability in our communications, surveillance and defense infrastructure. Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and Defensive Counterspace (DCS) efforts are aimed at leveraging the massive amounts of data gathered from ground, air and… more
Abstract:In the field of aircraft health management, the integration and availability of historical data from multiple data sources is necessary for diagnostic and prognostic algorithms to realize their full potential. Especially important is the integration of historical in-flight operational data with… more
Abstract:Red teaming is a technique that has been used successfully for some time in the military community to uncover system vulnerabilities or to find exploitable gaps in operational concepts, such as new weapon systems or tactics. Red teaming is currently a human intensive technique that typically brings… more
Abstract:Hyperspectral sensor systems are currently under consideration for applications related to monitoring the nuclear fuel cycle and other signatures of interest to the nonproliferation community. These applications include the detection of camouflaged and concealed targets, gas plume detection and… more
Abstract:To support its use of MEMS sensors for vehicle health monitoring, the Air Force seeks to couple the harvesting of ambient energy sources with a micro energy storage device. Microbatteries have demonstrated their viability as a high density power source, but their short operating life limits their… more
Abstract:Cacao trees grow and produce well in Hawaii. How can we develope cacao growing and chocolate production to best utilize this asset?

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
